I am having asus S400CA triple booting windows 8.1, mavericks and ubuntu 13.10.

Before installing ubuntu, I have intial efi partition boots windows and another colver efi partition used to boot osx. After installing ubuntu, I get menu options to boot ubuntu, windows and osx. First two works ok. osx does not boot from the option. How to make ubuntu menu to run osx or any other alternative to boot either one from single menu.

Why don't you use Clover menu to boot Linux instead of using Linux boot menu?

clover menu needs disabling secureboot where as ubuntu and windows boot secureboot under ubuntu menu.

Grub bootloader can't load OS X directly, you have to find a way to chainload Grub > Clover > OS X.

How to do it? Will it work with secure boot?

I used to be able to just chainloader /path/to/cloverx64.efi but something is different about the grub on the newest ubuntu and now i have to load it through bios or chainloader the efi shell to load clover. I'm beginning to think i should just switch back to chameleon. I cant just use clover because the gui only shows up when i do a legacy boot, otherwise it just loads my mavericks partition for me as set in its config file for default partition. I mostly just use mavericks all day except when i want to jam games on windows or need to perform some sort of black magic on ubuntu. So bios editing every second boot spose
